Charles St. ramp to Beltway closing

February 04, 2010

The State Highway Administration will close the ramp from southbound Charles Street to eastbound Interstate 695 beginning tonight as part of the replacement of a bridge over the Beltway. As of Friday morning, motorists approaching the Beltway from Lutherville will be diverted to York Road until fall. The ramp from northbound Charles Street to the eastbound Beltway will remain open. On Friday, motorists approaching the Charles Street interchange from Lutherville will be directed to a detour using Bellona Avenue and the York Road interchange. The schedule is contingent on the weather. According to the SHA, the temporary ramp closure is part of Phase 2 of construction of the new Charles Street bridge over I-695. The project is expected to be completed in spring 2012. The work zone is one of three in the state being monitored with speed cameras.
